The Path

God’s work has laid the path
and we just follow the illustration.
Responding to God’s love for us;
Great effort and inspiration.

Increasing positive qualities like
faith, self-control, calmness,
perseverance, kindness, and love;
Mindful of the promise.

The promise of a rich welcome
into the eternal kingdom
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ;
May we all grow in wisdom.

May virtues like seeds multiply
as we plant and cultivate the attitude
of Christ within our soul;
Shining the light with gratitude.

About Mark Shields

Mark works in the Information Systems Department for an Insurance Company. He volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church and runs the 10:50 worship service computer. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. You’re invited to join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
